How do you recover from broken confidence?

“Been torn apart.
Got so many scratches and scars.”
-Ms. Natasha B.

Ideally, confidence is something that should be steady, but experience tells us otherwise. 🙂

How do you pick yourself up again after you’ve taken a hit?
How do you recover from a bruised ego?


We will recover…

PS: This isn’t a cry for attention. This isn’t even something I’m necessarily feeling at the moment. Just an interesting part of the human condition I wanna explore a lil’ bit.

Unspeakably Beautiful

That’s the only way I know how to describe this.

I fell in love when I first heard it six years.

And it has stayed in my heart since then.

Thank you John.

 

unspeakably beautiful…

A Poem Inspired by Jack Johnson’s “Flake.”

Screen shot 2014-07-29 at 9.31.22 PM

 

“It seems to me that ‘maybe’
pretty much always means no.”


For heaven’s sake,
don’t be a flake.
Follow through
on what you say you’ll do.
Don’t let people down,
don’t give ’em reasons to frown.
Lemme get back on track
with the wise words from Jack,
“When [you say you’re] gonna try,
it might not work because of other ties”
That’s a broken promise
which is basically a lie.
So “please, please, please” don’t let my heart break.
Don’t be careless, and DON’T BE A FLAKE!
🙂
PS: These are not sentiments that I’m feeling currently. Just like the idea. And I just heard that Jack Johnson song and whipped out this little piece (which is definitely not my finest)

It is not good that Katherine should be alone.

It hurts to be lonely.
But it’s actually good.
It means you desire companionship,
Just like you should.

“..It is not good that

[wo]man should be alone.”
-Genesis 2:18

I saw this live 4 years ago.

I’ve thought about it everyday since then.

The monologue is out of this world.

I’M PERFECTLY LONELY!

🙂

it is not good that Katherine should be alone

It is not good that

Katherine should be alone
